Man Who Stabbed Dog, Left Her to Die Arrested: Irving Police

Irving police say a man who stabbed a dog multiple times, then left the dog to die tied up to a dumpster has been arrested.

Officers were called to the 1800 block of W. Irving Boulevard on Monday, February 27. That's where they found the deceased dog lying next to a dumpster.

On Friday afternoon, police took Joseph Ray Schell, 60, into custody. He is currently in the Irving City Jail on a charge of cruelty to non-livestock animals, a state jail felony.


Earlier this week, officers released surveillance video from a nearby business showing Schell walking with the dog.
